Published

on

‘Cork Harbour Islands Project (C.H.I.P.) will be holding their next Exhibition in Cobh Maritime Building, Railway Station, Cobh in September. This year’s exhibition will focus on one of the most iconic buildings in Ireland – St Colman’s Cathedral. Our beautiful Cathedral will celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the laying of its Foundation Stone this year and next year will see the 100th Anniversary of its Consecration.

The Exhibition will focus on the all aspects of the Cathedral from its beginning, those that worked on it and the huge social aspect it has played in the history of our town over the last hundred years. In this regard we would be delighted for any of your photos of these social events such as Weddings, Christenings Confirmations, Communions and any other photos/info you may have on the Cathedral

Everything is of interest to us no matter how small as it is only by recording this information that it is preserved for generations to come.

The cheque of €500 was presented to St. Vincent de Paul on Tuesday evening at the Community Centre. It was part of the proceeds from the Centre’s ‘Christmas Variety Concert’. John Coleman, Chairman of the Cobh Community Centre, thanked all the groups that performed at the concert last December, including nearby colleges St. Mary’s National School, Bunscoil Rinn an Chabhlaigh and Scoil Iosaef. Members of the Fundraising Committee – Manager, Gwen O’Halloran, Majella Smith, Martin O’Leary and Catherine Jefferson – also expressed their appreciation for the spirited and uplifting performances that were given last December by the Children’s Theatre, the Cope Foundation Day Unit, Pop & Rock and the Carrigtwohill Gospel Choir. Thanking the Cobh Community Centre, Liz O’Driscoll and Aine O’Regan from St. Vincent de Paul said, “Our charity receives much focus around Christmas time, which is a great thing, but our work is ongoing, year-round. Therefore, donations at this time of year are especially important to us.”

The Chairman used the presentation of the cheque to St. Vincent de Paul to announce ambitious plans to increase the usage of the Centre’s many and varied facilities. John noted, “Cobh Community Centre has great potential for hosting a variety of both community and commercial activities as well as training sessions. We offer convenience plus first-class facilities. That’s a package that’s hard to top! We are also constantly expanding and upgrading our classes and events. So, there is something here for everyone in the Cobh community…the Centre literally does what it says on the tin!”
